Nashville Predators haven't got much to do these days but wait and see whether Ryan Suter accepts the team's contract offer, or take his talents to South Detroit, South Philly, or wherever else that might be.
Not much to do, other than tune in to 102.5 The Game this afternoon - I'm joining Willy Daunic from 5:00-6:00, taking calls on the Preds and the free agent market so far. What do you think of Tootoo heading to Detroit? Do you like the guys the team has brought back already? What should they do if Suter walks? Call in (737-1025) and spark the discussion.
After, of course, reading your daily hockey notes...
